– by Jaihoon

She kills my hate-
With love

She swallows my anger-
With joy

She wipes my tears-
With smile

She removes my thorns-
With roses

She heals my wounds-
With gifts

She eclipses my verses-
With sacrifice

She for me like a fading star
I for her the Sun and Moon

I hardly find a moment to remember her
She doesn’t consider anything besides me

Even as I damn her to hell,
She prays for my place in paradise

The Self has no place in Love
On selfish soil its seed’s forbidden to sow

Every precious thing in life has a price to be paid
Love, the greatest, demands your Self be low-laid
